Sagala Rajamaja Viharaya lies on a top of a massive rock called Nelligala  in the Ridigama area west of the popular Rambadagalla Viharaya. The whole rock called Nelligala is believed to have been massive Aramaic complex since the 1st century BC. 11 drip ledge caves used by meditating monks have been documented surrounding this rock with many more yet to be exposed.

Sri Sagala Rajamaha Viharaya lies midway of the rock and at the top you will find the Wayamba Ranaviru Sama Maha Seya made of granite.
